Sunday Nights -- 5:00 PM LifeTeen Mass -- 6:30 - 8:00 PM Life Night.

CONFIRMATION - Confirmation isn't about crossing T's or dotting I's, and preparation for Confirmation isn't about putting hours in a classroom. It's not even about quality and content. Confirmation is all about a conversion of the heart experience. If you are interested in taking that next step in the faith journey contact Deacon Ed, in the Religious Ed Offices - 577-8782. "You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be my witness... " Acts 1:8
